Bali survivor slams Australia’s Islam matriarch

Sydney, Feb.6 (ANI): A survivor of the first bombing that took place in Bali, Indonesia, in October 2002 has criticised Australias Islam matriach Rabiah Hutchinson.
Peter Hughes said Hutchinson was uninformed and utterly insensitive.
“It’s like going back to that moment when the suicide bomber was standing next to me,” quoted Hughes, as saying.
Hughes nearly died in the attack in which 202 people, including 88 Australians, were killed.
Hughes warned that some people would hunt down Hutchinson after she had made less than sympathetic statements about victims and survivors of that attack.
In an hour-long documentary, Hutchinson, who was married to the former Australian leader of the Jemaah Islamiah, the terror group responsible for the bombing, was asked about the attack.
“Do I feel for the people that died? Not as much as I feel for those 200 Afghani people that gave me and my children shelter,” Hutchinson said.
“Why? Because they weren’t holidaying in someone’s country, sometimes engaging in child pornography or pedophilia or drug-taking.”
John Harrison, who lost his daughter Nicole in the bombing, said: “I hope to Christ that someone belonging to her, like a son or a daughter, gets killed somewhere along the line and she suffers like we have.” (ANI)
